Fall Charcuterie Board
September 22, 2020

The following information and photography were provided by local blogger Abby Thome of The Thome Home.

Locally made Brownwood Farms jams and preserves are on the shelves at Heinen’s and they are the perfect addition to a fall charcuterie board!

Featuring five incredible flavors, including Pear & Cinnamon Preserves, Michigan Blueberry Preserves, Michigan Cherry Preserves, Strawberry Spread and Peppy Jelly, you can pair a wide variety of Heinen’s specialty cheeses with these fruity finds, allowing you to completely change the flavor profile with each bite from your board. This, is truly key for a great charcuterie spread!

With cooler days setting in, creating a gorgeous fall-themed charcuterie board with Brownwood Farms is a must!

Here is everything you need to know to mimic the look of this showstopping board!

With every charcuterie board, you want to make sure you play on all flavor profiles and textures – sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy.

I recommend mixing a sweet jam with the Fenugreek Gouda and a drizzle of honey and pairing the pepper jelly Heinen’s French Brie! Both are delicious and will add depth to your board.
